Ok, I have a 2001. 40,000 km.

on the kickstand side, there has been a few drips running down the face of the engine cover. I cant see where its coming from.

whats above that? Any breathers up there? (The 2 breathers I know of arent facing there, they are hanging down further back)

iv have only just realised this oil. and been doing alot of idling whilst doing some work on it.
under thr lower fairing has a bit of oil residue there also. But no drips on garage floor atm.

breathing heavy dew to high idling, and not moving much? My only concern is there is also signs on inside of the fairing also, so must have been doing it for a bit.

Anything common to check?

! Cool. Thanks

I tried nipping up the bolts, all tight.

was thinking something above it, just because its running down the face of the cover.

Could be the seal at the stator wire is leaking. There is only one thing above the cover that holds oil. And thats your cylinder head.
Ofc it could be the cylinder head cover gasket leaking also but that would be visible all the way down.
